Thermal analysis of meat and meat products

A review
  • Poonkodi Tamilmani
  • Mohan Chandra Pandey


The application of thermal analysis to meat products, like all materials, is governed by energy transfer, from which invaluable information on thermodynamics of processes is obtained. Various meat systems have been analyzed with different success ratios. Proteins in meat formed the key area of interest due to their effect on product quality, shelf life, functionality and also their ability to interact with other components. Initially success rates were low owing to lack of sensitivity, results with complex curves, complications in interpretation and a large number of factors affecting the biological system. Later with developments in instrumentation and computer models for better resolution and reproducibility, wider horizons could be covered with easy solutions to complex results. Though thermal analysis has been used exhaustively in meat, research in this area has become stagnant and new areas are being left untouched. This review emphasizes the importance of thermal analysis in the meat industry and also the need to use more advanced equipment for better understanding of the biological changes occurring in muscle during processing and storage.
